Being that I eat too much bread before ordering my meal, drink way too many frozen sweet drinks, and eat too much dessert and danish, I don't wanna know how many calories I truly consume per day on a cruise. Over 3500? Probably, when all is said and done.
I gain a pound per day on a cruise. I always gain 7 pounds on 7-night cruises. It's the bread, the danish, the desserts, the frozen drinks, etc. that do it to me. I don't eat that way at home. I do exercise though, and still gain the weight!
For me, a cruise is not a time to watch what I eat. I only go every other year or so, and I am enjoying myself to the fullest when I go! I don't deprive myself of anything, and when I get home I just go back to eating healthy and the weight comes right off. My husband, on the other hand, gained 5 pounds on his first cruise with us (5-night cruise). We told him that it would come off within a week of coming home. Well he weighed himself a week later and had gained another 5 pounds! I guess he continued to eat the same amount when he came home! He eventually lost it though, and even some more.
